April is near and the fishing on Lake Erie keeps getting better by the day! The jig bite will start to heat up in the next week. The forecasted warmer temps and rain will really help raise the water temperature and get the walleye spawn kicked into full throttle. The reef complex and other spawning grounds will soon be loaded with aggressive eater size jack males, which makes for a super fun time on the water. A mix of pre-spawn and post-spawn females will be staged off the reef complex in the deeper water. Trolling has been very productive the last few weeks in March when the weather allows. We are hoping the wind/rain will give all of us anglers some opportunities to get out in these upcoming weeks as the first 2 weeks of April can be absolutely fantastic fishing, regardless whether you are jigging or trolling!
Launch Location - Lake Erie Islands, OH
